The real revelation in the ongoing saga of Aaron Herr is that they actually give out a "Postseason Utility Player of the Year," or PUPOTY.
Triple-A: Aaron Herr, last year's IL Postseason Utility Player of the Year, returned to the Bats with a thud, striking out 3 times and committing 2 errors in the Bats' 8-5 loss to Rochester. Herr was with the Bats all last year with the Bats but joined Cleveland's Buffalo Bisons this year. He was traded as the Bisons were leaving town, so he just headed back to the old home clubhouse yesterday. Kevin Barker hit his team-high 10th home run, and Josh Roenicke and Daniel Ray Herrera got roughed up a bit. UP NEXT: Rochester, 7 tonight.
High A: Todd Frazier hit his 6th home run for Sarasota in the first of two S-Reds losses, 9-3 and 4-1. Dan Perales went 3 for 3 with a triple in Game 2 and is flourishing so far in High A, batting .304 in his first 19 games. UP NEXT: Reds at St. Lucie, 7 tonight.
Low A: Brandon Waring cracked his 14th homer in Dayton's 6-4 loss. Keltavious Jones was 2 for 5 with a triple, and Jeff Jeffords struck out 3 in 3 scoreless innings. UP NEXT: South Bend at Dayton, 7 tonight.
Also: Andrew means went 3 for 4 in Billings' 6-5 loss. ... Juan Duran was 1 for 3 with a triple in the DSL Reds' 6-5 win. ... Evan Hildebrandt allowed just 1 hit in 6 innings in the GCL Reds' 9-2 win. Frank Pfister was 4 for 4 with 2 doubles, 3 runs and 2 RBIs.
